Part 15 Friday Night

“So, who wants a drink?” Dylan asked, he held up a bottle of what looked like rum.

“Where did you get that?” Sam asked.

“I have my ways,” Dylan smirked. “So, who wants some?” he asked again. Both Sam and Cody agreed to have a few drinks.

After a few drinks, Cody was feeling a buzz. He was enjoying himself for the first time in a while.

“So!” Dylan yelled. “Who wants to play a drinking game?” He asked. Both Cody and Sam nodded excitedly. “We’re going to play a movie game, I have a copy of “The Banana” and every time they say Banana, take a drink,” Sam and Cody nodded excitedly again.

Not far into the movie, Cody could hardly see, he’d drank that much.

Part 16: Saturday Morning

sorry if the end part of this is a bit confusing to read

Wake Up Cody.

Cody groaned and rolled over. He was in his own bed again. As he rolled his hand touched someone else. He shot up and saw Sam sleeping peacefully next to him. She stirred a little with his movement and wrapped her arms around him in her sleep. Cody breathed slowly, he wasn’t sure what had happened last night, he didn’t remember most of the movie they’d been watching.

“Sam, wake up,” he nudged her lightly. She slowly opened her eyes and looked up at Cody. She smiled and held him tighter. Cody wasn’t sure what to do, but he liked having Sam so close to him. More so than he thought he ever would.

After cuddling together for a while they got up and found Dylan in the Kitchen cooking eggs and bacon again.

“Morning you two,” He grinned and served the meal.

“Morning” Cody and Sam said in unison. Cody blushed and stared at the floor. He had no idea what had happened, but whatever it was, Sam was his now.

“So, did you two have fun last night?” Dylan asked slyly. Cody felt his face grow hotter.

“That’s none of your business Dylan” Sam snapped. She went over to the fridge and got out the milk. She made herself cereal and sat at the table.

Can I talk to you later Cody?

Cody inwardly cursed Alex for talking to him while there were others around.

I’m sorry… I forgot you prefer to talk to me out loud.

“You can hear my thoughts?” Cody was surprised. Alex giggled.

Really Cody? I’ve done it plenty of times before.

“I guess…” Cody thought back to the times when Alex responded to his thoughts rather than what he said

Anyway. If you’re going to live with Dylan, could you please tell him something for me?

“How exactly do you want me to do that?” Cody thought to her. Alex paused for while.

I didn’t quite think that far ahead.

“Dandy.” Cody sighed

Please Cody!

“Fine.”

Part 17: Saturday Afternoon

Sam decided to head back to her home again. She would probably make up a story to satisfy her parents.

“So Dylan,” Cody started. He was planning on talking to Dylan about Alex, but wasn’t suite sure how to start.

“Yeah man?” Dylan asked.

“This might sound, really crazy, but just hear me out okay.” Cody started, Dylan gave him a skeptical look but simply nodded. Cody took a deep breath before continuing.

“Okay, for the last 6 days, I’ve been hearing this voice in my head. She told me her name was Alex, and well, I started talking with her a bit and she told me that she was your sister.” He glanced at Dylan to see his reaction. Dylan was stoic, and stone faced.

“My sister is talking to you?” he asked, Cody nodded. “Did she have anything to say to me?” he asked and Cody nodded again.

Tell him that it was my fault.

“She says that it was her fault,” Cody relayed. Dylan scoffed.

I was the one not wearing a seatbelt!

“She said she was the one not wearing a seatbelt.” Cody relayed again. Dylan glared at him.

“She also loves you,” Cody added instinctively from the feeling he was getting from Alex.

“Is that it?” Dylan asked, he didn’t look impressed. Cody nodded sadly. “Well, thanks for telling me what I wanted to hear, but next time, go about it in a less, messed up way will you,” Dylan sighed and headed to his room. Cody sat on the couch alone and wondered what he did wrong.

MY APOLOGIES FOR THE CRAPPY ASS ENDING! I suck at making things end =(

Part 18: Saturday Night

Dylan hadn’t spoken to Cody since their talk about Alex earlier that day. Cody was worried that he’d made Dylan mad. He would talk to Alex about it, but she was silent, and Cody didn’t understand why.

“Alex, please say something!?” Cody called out for her in his head. Since Monday, he’d come to rely on her. She was like a constant company, when Cody was so alone. Now she was seemingly gone. He couldn’t feel her presence at all. Had she gone onward, left the world?

“Alex?” Cody called out loud. Dylan poked his head around the corner and looked at Cody with confusion.

“You okay man?” he asked and came over to sit next to Cody.

“She’s gone… I-I can’t feel her there anymore,” Tears welled up in Cody’s eyes. Dylan looked at Cody with disbelief.

“She really was there, wasn’t she?” He asked softly. Cody nodded. He wanted Alex to come back.

“Well, I guess she said what she needed to say, and now she’s gone.” Dylan shrugged. “Such is life I guess,” Cody only nodded. Everyone close to him, they were all disappearing one by one, and there was nothing Cody could do to stop it.

Aww, poor Cody. I figured she would have moved on after she completed her business. I don't think it's a crappy ending--she didn't seem to have much reason to stick around. It seemed she thought her brother was in good hands and didn't think Cody needed her around to give him advice or take care of them.

Things did seems a bit rushed at the end, but I actually think this is a fine place to have an ending, just the last sentence bothers me a bit just because have Cody and Sam got together and even though Alex is gone Cody also did gain a friend/room mate in the end. I don't know... could just be me. Overall I really did like the story. Good job with it.

      Teen Titans Go! is a comic book series based on the 2003 animated TV series Teen Titans. It often extends from the show, expanding on plot lines the show introduced and adding new characters. The animated series itself is loosely based on the characters that starred in the popular 1980s comic The New Teen Titans. The series is completely different from the original comics which were written in the 1960s.
      The series was written by Joseph Torres, and Todd Nauck and Larry Stucker were the regular illustrators. The series was published by DC Comics.

      Michael stared at the woman in the mirror. He supposed averaging four hours of sleep over the past two weeks wasn't ideal, but hallucinations seemed excessive.

       

      She seemed to blink when he did, mimicking his other movements perfectly. Even the number of teeth seemed to match as he ran his tongue over each one.

       

      When he reached for the long dark hair that flowed over her shoulders in the reflection and grabbed an unexpected handful of hair, he took in a slow, controlled breath. The reflection smiled, the corners of her eyes crinkling and drawing attention to the faint bags that formed beneath.

       

      He felt his lips part. “That’s enough for now.” The voice was feminine, static faint beneath the lilting sounds. “Rest your eyes, won’t you?”

       

      Michael went to sleep.

       

      ===

       

      Something stank.

       

      Corben tried to roll over and go back to sleep, but was met with utmost resistance from his body. He groaned and took a mental step back, focusing his energy into opening his eyes.

       

      It was painful, like soap rubbed under his eyelids. His arms wouldn’t cooperate long enough to let him rub the pain out, so he squeezed his eyes shut, forcing out the pooled tears. They tumbled over his cheeks hotly and still his eyes burned.

       

      After a few orchestrated blinks, he managed to stabilise his vision long enough to examine his surroundings—or, at least, realise he was staring at the open predawn sky sandwiched between towering grey brick.

       

      The smell hadn’t left either.

       

      He tried to move again. It felt like he was lying on garbage bags, but he couldn’t get past how much his eyes hurt. Whether the bags were filled with pizza boxes or rotten fruit didn’t make much difference—he needed to get up. Corben grit his teeth and tried to launch his upper body forward.

       

      When his back seized with pain instead of lifting, he swore he could crack a tooth. He clumsily groped the bags beneath him, trying to force some feeling into his limbs long enough to figure out what he was lying on. What little he could feel through the plastic was immediately recognisable.

       

      Bottles. Broken bottles.

       

      Corben laughed.

      Tangential Notes:

      Chapter One [Part One]

       

      The bedroom was cosy, bordering on spartan with its limited personal touches. A glass vase with two sun-faded paper flowers attached to bits of wire. An errant comb, a few strands of hair woven into its teeth, next to a small stack of dogeared magazines long since out of date. Windows curtained and shut, the bright sunlight outside was barred entry. The walls were blank, a faded beige that might have been white at some point.

       

      Blank, save for the wall behind the bed. A mirror, wall to wall and floor to ceiling, reflected the room in its entirety. Its surface was clean and unbroken, not a single scratch or speck of dust to be found despite the headboard pushed directly against it, the sheets and comforter on the mattress in disarray.

       

      Felicia’s voice came through the closed door from the hallway, words dampened to murmurs. The door was pushed open, marked by a slight pop as it moved past the frame. She pressed her phone to her ear with her shoulder, a bowl of cereal in her hands. Shadows had formed beneath her eyes, her dark brown hair pulled back into a messy ponytail.

       

      She set the bowl on the nightstand and pushed the blankets aside. “No, I just got back from the lab. What’s up?” She sat down on the bed, perching her feet on the edge of the bed frame.

       

      “Tim.” She let out a breath. “Tim, stop. I don’t think she hates you. Your sister just turned, what, thirty? Thirty-one. She’s been in the spotlight since she was your age—that’s an entire decade in front of the camera, of her name being plastered everywhere in magazines. She’s not as young as she used to be.”

       

      Felicia switched the phone to her other ear and picked up the bowl. She popped a few spoonfuls of cereal into her mouth. The flakes were beginning to get soggy. “Much as I love to hear you suffer,” she said, putting the bowl down, “I don’t think that’s why you called me this early on a Sunday. Early for you, anyway. What’s going on?”

       

      There was a pause as she listened, a grin spreading across her face as she snickered. “Are you kidding me? Come on, isn’t Steve going? Aren’t you guys—” Another pause. The smile on her face immediately disappeared. “Oh. Oh. Shit, I’m sorry. I didn’t… I hope they work it out. Have you asked Amy to go with you? Not my sister, Le—Bev’s daughter. She’s in town for a few weeks, isn’t she?”

       

      Another pause. Felicia rubbed her forehead. “Figures she’d already have plans. All right, all right. I’ll go with you. It’s tomorrow night? Okay. I’ll see you at seven.” She hung up the phone and sighed, staring at the blank screen for a while.

       

      Her eyes flicked to her reflection in the mirror. She put a hand to the glass and, for a moment, she thought that it began to ripple beneath her fingers. Something in her stomach seized and excitement crept up on her. She closed her eyes.

       

      All she felt was its surface, solid as ever. She scolded herself silently for getting worked up and turned on her phone.

       

      The background was somewhat distorted, just a touch too wide for the phone’s resolution. It was a picture of her as a teenager, with a ridiculous head of multi-coloured streaks she absolutely insisted was vital to her personality. Leon was carrying her on his back, a goofy grin on his face.

       

      She frowned.

       

      Here she found herself, sitting on a bed that had seen more people than she would like to admit, a mostly full bowl of cereal waiting for her on the nightstand, staring at an old picture…

       

      And all she could think about was what she was going to wear tomorrow. A welcome distraction to be sure; it would be nice to be able to get away from the house. Felicia cast a sidelong glance at the mirror. Among other things.

       

      She couldn’t shake what had happened. The mirror moved—she was convinced of that much. She dropped the phone on the bed and stood up, taking the bowl.

       

      What more was there for her to do? Wait in front of the mirror for days like she used to? She was years away from sixteen—talking with Tim reminded her of that much. Of course, she was also years away from thirty. A small smile touched her lips.

       

      She left the room, closing the door behind her, pulling it roughly to get it to stay shut.

      So I had sudden inspiration to write a short story. I decided to do it in third person which is a bit out of my comfort zone. (Normally I do first person POVs) Anyway, here it is, enjoy.
